Bedoya Is a Great Pick for the FTC

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Joe Biden is expected to nominate privacy advocate Alvaro Bedoya for a seat on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Emily Peterson-Cassin, digital rights advocate for Public Citizen, released the following statement:

“Alvaro Bedoya is a great choice to fill out the strongest FTC we’ve seen in decades. His expertise on the effect of data extraction on marginalized communities will help the FTC return human privacy and dignity to its rightful place in our surveillance economy. He should be swiftly confirmed.”
